At the age of thirty-one, Betty Eadie died after routine surgery. The events that followed can only be described as the most profound and extensive near-death experience ever recorded. During the time she was clinically dead, Betty was given knowledge of the afterlife that would make even the greatest skeptic think twice. As she traveled through the spiritual realm, she learned more about the laws and history of the universe than perhaps anyone before her. She explains with uncanny detail the reasons why we have chosen to be on this earth at this time in history and how all out actions are growing experiences for our immortal spirits. In those few minutes that stretched into eternity, Betty’s life was changed forever. In this special unabridged recording of Embraced by the Light, she shares the vision of a world she never imagined existed and gives new meaning to the question, “Why are we here?” Download and start listening now!

    " I loved the story, I was inspired and recommended it to someone close to me whom is experiencing the loss of someone close. I feel the author is up against a few odds releasing this book at her level of writing experience. I dont mind it a bit, it sooths wounds from losing a loved one and inspires us to be better people. "

    " This is a book about a near-death experience. I thought it was pretty interesting, fascinating, and even insightful.However, it's been a while since I read it, and I may see it differently now. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cody | 1/12/2014

    " This is one of the few books I have ever read from cover to cover. This is also one of only 2 books I ever read that gave me a very noticeable feeling after reading it. I mean you can get some certain SUBTLE feelings after reading any book. I think people that say books come to life and jump off the pages are exaggerating. But the same goes with if you view a picture, her music, ect.I got a feeling of lightness and expandedness after reading it. It was the first book I got that feeling with. All my reading dates are rough estimates. The years are usually correct. I knew a past Pentecostal church friend that went from being really filled with the Holy Spirit to doing a complete 180 degree turn the WRONG WAY and going backslid. He went from having passed out on the floor having to be carried out to the vehicle Holy Ghost encounters to abruptly stop going to church. He also started talking worldly vulgar language. I talked with my other past church friend and we were saying that he seemed pretty smart or something to that effect. Then, John will call him said "yea, but there is such thing as being too smart for your own good." "Shoot if that's the case than the whole world must be too smart for there own good," I responded. I always wondered what it was that made most of the world too smart for there own good. Then after reading this I believe I finally figured it out. I knew there had too be something preachers were not telling me. Being "too smart for one's own good" isn't necessarily a bad thing. Because it helps people make educated choices. It helps them to steer their ship to the best island (the place that makes them happy, la de da). Betty Eadie has a few similar characteristics that my former preacher had. She says things in the most simple laymen terms. She satisfies people's questions. In other words she doesn't says responses that would make you go "what?!?" She said she would keep preaching until her body gives out. His body did eventually give out. I seen him preach only one time. "

    " Amazing book that gives you so much to consider. It has been said people who have had near-death experiences are either lying or were just dreaming--the way I see it is either way, it makes you think about what's out there. Beautiful book! "

    " At first I thought it was sweet and interesting. Around the part about Satan tempting women more than men and how we women have to be vigilant, I had let this one go and just chalk it up to one of those mad impulse library checkouts. Bleh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glenn | 1/29/2011

    " Fascinating story of a near death experience. I was hoping that some aspect of the story could be clinically verified or documented beyond that which is subjectively reported. Nevertheless, it's a good, quick read. "

    " This was a re-read for me. Read in junior high or whenever it first came out. Meant a lot more to me on my quest for spiritual knowledge. It really helped me to feel good and affirmed my belief that life really is all about love. Not religion, but spirituality, learning, experiencing and love. "

She has written several books in an effort to share with others what her experience taught her about God and mans existence, the meaning of life, and what waits in the afterlife. Betty has given countless lectures and interviews and made radio and television appearances across America and abroad.
